Goodbye From London – 03/07/2017 – 03:20

Wow! Well what an event that was! London delivered again for the second time this year! This Poker Room really is like no other.

A massive 449 entries in total for the £500 main event which was a NEW record. The Poker Room in London keeps on breaking records on the GUKPT Tour.

Today there were 30 players coming back to do battle and we knew we were in for a long one. 15 hours later we have a champion in George Alexander. It was a very cagey final table, but he ran the best and played out of his skin, which means he goes home with £50,000, the total and the trophy.

Thank You to everyone who has interacted with us over the last four days of play, whether it was in the chatbox on the live stream, liking our pictures posts or entering our Facebook competitions. Where we haven give away over £330 of tokens.

That’s it from London. We hope you have enjoyed the coverage over the four days of play. We’ll be back in less than four weeks time at the GOLIATH!!! If we don’t see you there please join us online.

Until next time, be lucky.
